New Delhi | Jagran Entertainment Desk: The trailer of actor Sushant Singh Rajput’s final film ‘Dil Bechara’, opposite debutant Sanjana Sanghi got released on Monday, 6th July, a little over three weeks after Sushant abruptly chose to leave the world.

The film, directed by the famed casting director Mukesh Chhabra, is based on American author John Green’s novel ‘The Fault in Our Stars’ whose terminally ill lead characters explore beautifully nuanced notions of love by travelling to certain places filled with a blend of Love and Loss at the moments of extreme agony.

With a little over two minutes duration of the trailer, the very context of struggles that Manny (Sushant) goes through to absorb the drizzles of love from the sky of life being consistently sucked out of him by a terminal illness, invokes genuinely warm emotions.

Displaying Manny’s irreplaceable pursuance of life with Kizie Basu (Sanjana) from the playfully terrific auditorium performance of Manny to the wrenching frames of a hospital, with Dil Bechara’s trailer, the goosebumps that are induced by watching SSR again on the screen organically transform into feeling tormented of the realisation of his actual loss.

Ironically, the trailer goes on to highlight the incredible uncertainties of life, the abruptness of death, and consistent pace to stop oneself from getting lost into oblivion while trying to make the most pragmatic sense of situations – all induced by the certainty of death – everything is brought up in the trailer quite remarkably.

Sushant’s pairing with debutant actress Sanjana Sanghi appears to be well synchronised, and terrifically rehearsed before shooting the first shot. Sanjana’s appearance in the trailer seems to vindicate the notion of right ascertainment of Delhi-based actors in Mumbai’s Film industry due to their theatre background.

The teasing induced by the shreds of AR Rahman-composed music creates a unique enticement into the sped-up narration of trailer.

If the makers have followed John Green, and source material sincerely, then this 24th July, Manny and Kizie’s hospital scenes can make you go far more emotional than those of Naina (Preity Zinta) and Rahul (Shah Rukh Khan) in the climax of Nikkhil Advani’s ‘Kal Ho Naa Ho’ (2003).

Back then, viewers knew that unlike in the fictional portrayal of a film, Shah Rukh remains dapped up with life and worldwide admiration off the screen. With Sushant, however, you know that though the admiration remains, but unfortunately he will never make up to the screen for any other creation after this ever again.
